jodie meeks suspended 25 games

The NBA has suspended Jodie Meeks for 25 games without pay after he tested positive for ipamorelin and GHRP-2.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Meeks’ attorney claims that the League took “premature action” in issuing the suspension.

Meeks tested positive for banned compounds ipamorelin and growth-hormone-releasing peptide-2, sources said. […]

Meeks’ lawyer Ben Levine of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani said: “It is regrettable that the NBA has prematurely taken action against Jodie today. Accordingly, we will appeal the suspension and vigorously defend Jodie’s rights. Unfortunately, under the CBA, a player is guilty until proven innocent and while Jodie’s appeal is pending he will be forced to sit out the playoffs.”
